Easing into the ones & zeros with Rafe Arnott

Rafe Arnott to Become Editor of InnerFidelity and AudioStream

By | May 16th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead, Audiostream, Innerfidelity|Tags: , |

Yes, that is correct. Audio-Head contributor Rafe Arnott is the new editor for both InnerFidelity and AudioStream, and we couldn’t be more happy for the man. Rafe has helped out Audio-Head for the past few years and was instrumental in elevating our show coverage to new levels. His sharp wit is matched only by his keen eye for photography and the new position is a perfect fit for his many talents. We wish him the best of luck in the path in front of him and will miss his copy and imagery here very much.… Read the full article

For Immediate Release

Frederick, Maryland. May 16th, 2018.

Today, we are sad to announce the departure of Rafe Arnott, our esteemed Editor and Creative Director for  The Occasional Magazine and Part-Time Audiophile.

It’s been three years since Rafe joined the team at Part-Time Audiophile. Almost three years to the day, in fact, since he launched his debut covering an audio show in his hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia. We immediately recognized that his unique style and visual daring were unmatched in today’s high-end, gifts that he used to revolutionize Part-Time Audiophile’s look and helped rocket us through a period of explosive growth.… Read the full article

Métronome Technologie C5+ DAC

By | April 26th, 2018|Categories: Audiostream|

As an audio reviewer, there are times I find it necessary to pull back from over-analyzing the sound of a product and get back to the fundamentals that drew me into this hobby in the first place. Engaging musicality can often be lost to one that is focusing on specifics such as soundstage, bass, dynamics, and resolution. The Métronome Technologie C5+ DAC, a DAC designed and manufactured in France, is a high-end product that helped me get back to the audio place that all of us are ultimately seeking.

By | April 16th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead, Audiostream|Tags: , |

It has been a bit of a tumultuous time for the Stereophile properties since they were recently acquired by AVTech Media. As with any changing of hands, a changing of the guard sometimes also follows. In a surprise move this weekend at the AXPONA audio show in Chicago, Stereophile’s longtime Editor-In-Chief John Atkinson announced during his seminar Keynote: A Life In Audio that Jana Dagdagan will be taking over as editor of the digital-focused website AudioStream.

Previously Jana had been an editorial coordinator for all Stereophile sites and was tasked with reshaping the brand’s video content and YouTube channel.… Read the full article

Audio Without Numbers, by Herb Reichert

Two Men Meet, Each Believing the Other to Be of Higher Rank, Paul Klee (Etching and tonal etching on zinc, 1903)

[Please join me in welcoming columnist Herb Reichert to AudioStream. Ed. (yay!!)]

“Knowledge” that a storm is a Level 5 hurricane with 200mph winds and 30-inches of potential rainfall is nothing more than a quasi-imaginable cultural abstraction compared to sitting on the roof of your house clutching your water-soaked cat – waiting to be rescued.

Spotify’s NYSE Debut: Irrational Exuberance

By | April 4th, 2018|Categories: Audiostream|

Here we go again—a company that’s never seen a profit and doesn’t make its product has a big opening day on Wall St. making its owners wealthy (or wealthier). Gee, how great.

Monthly Spins: April 2018

By | April 3rd, 2018|Categories: Audiostream|

I guess I could say this every month but there’s so much amazing stuff to share with you that it’s a little overwhelming. Many of these albums I’ve listened to several, even a dozen times already and can easily imagine them making the best of the 2018 list and it’s only April. A lot of intense and dark, mainly instrumental sounds with some rather light touches as well. Enjoy!
